I'm planning a 9-day ski trip (one week, two weekends) this March, flying in and out of Calgary and skiing 2-3 days each at Lake Louise/Sunshine, Kicking Horse, and Revelstoke. A few questions for locals and other knowledgable folk:
- Which week in March would be best in terms of likely snow quality and (especially) crowds? It looks like BC and Alberta both have school vacations in March; not sure if this is something to factor in.
- Given that I'll be skiing on both weekdays weekends and have some flexibility on the order, any thoughts on which of these mountains (relative to the others) are less crowded on weekends, and which should be visited on weekdays only?
- From what I can gather these are the best mountains within driving distance of Calgary for steep terrain and a shot at fresh snow, but are there any other mountains I should consider?
